The Better Business Bureau says spring is the time of year when a lot of people start hiring contractors to do home projects. It could be remodeling, lawn care, tree trimming or roofing. The BBB advises that you take the time to do a little homework before you sign with a contractor. They recommend that you make checklist of things to consider. Track record, licensing, make sure they have necessary building permits, that you have a written contract, that they don’t require payment in full before the job is completed. They also remind homeowners to check out companies that go door-to-door and that use high pressure tactics. Janna Kiehl, President and CEO of the Texas Panhandle BBB was a guest on NewsDay Amarillo with Tim & Kelli on Wednesday morning with more guidelines.
